Peter Williams is the warden at Tyndale House in Cambridge, England. He is also one of the bright lights of evangelical scholarship. Last March, he gave a fascinating lecture at the Lanier Theological Library in Houston, Texas titled “New Evidences the Gospels were Based on Eyewitness Accounts.” John Piper has called this presentation “the most remarkable (video) lecture on the reliability of the Gospels I’ve ever heard.” I would agree with Piper. I found this lecture to be absolutely riveting. The main lecture is above, and a short Q&A with Dr. Williams is below.
If you want to pursue this topic further, I highly recommend Richard Bauckham’s excellent book Jesus and the Eyewitnesses (Eerdmans, 2006).
